Phantom Flex 4K rental. The ultra high speed Phantom Flex 4k camera is the latest novelty of the Vision Research brand.
Vision Research began in the film industry with the 2007 launch of the Phantom HD, which records at 1000fps and 2K resolution. Since then they have improved their line of film cameras until they reach the Phantom Flex 4K.
This camera provides ultra high speed images up to 938 fps in 4k and 1977 fps in 2k. Its range of frames per second goes from 15 fps to 2949 fps (1280 x 720), so it can record at standardized speeds (24 fps, 25 fps, 30 fps ... etc.). You also have the possibility to catch audio through the Mini-BOB adapter.
The Phantom Flex 4k captures large amounts of information per second, which implies advanced data transmission technology and a very high workflow. For that reason, Vision Research has incorporated the new Phantom CineMag IV 1T and 2T memories.
You can choose between two recording formats: Raw Cinema (up to 4k) and Apple Prores 422 HQ (up to 4k). There is the possibility of dual recording by saving both types of files at the same time. In this option the Raw Cinema will always be in 4k while the Prores 422HQ is optional between 2k and 4k.
The Phantom Flex 4k camera has two recording modes:
Loop: this is the loop recording mode. When Trigger is pressed, the camera constantly registers images in its RAM and retains those that are made just before pressing the Trigger button again. This information is downloaded to the Phantom CineMag IV memory.
The loop time oscillates basing on two factors: the camera's RAM and the recording speed to be used. There are three different models of Phantom Flex 4K according to its RAM: 32Gb, 64Gb and 128Gb, so the more RAM, the more loop seconds are available.
Rec / Stop: This mode is used to record at fewer frames per second but for longer. The images are saved directly in CineMag memory. In this mode you can record up to 120 frames per second with the CineMag IV of 2T and up to 90fps with 1T. It works similarly to most cameras: Rec is pressed to start capturing and it is pressed again to end the shot.
The Phantom Flex 4k camera sensor is Super 35mm CMOS (31.7mm diagonal) of 9.4 megapixels. This sensor can work in two modes: 4k and 2k. When working in 4k mode the sensor adopts 27.6mm x 15.5mm (Super-35mm) while working in 2k mode the sensor reduces its size to 13.8mm x 7.29mm (Super-16mm). It supports 2.0x anamorphic recording at a resolution of 2752 x 2304 and its HDSDI outputs provide a squeezed image in both 2x and 1.3x.
With the Phantom flex 4k you get a particular clean image with respect to noise and 12 stops of dynamic range. It incorporates a ultra fast (1 millisecond) shutter (rolling shutter) adjustable between 1º to 360º. It has an ISO range from 250 to 1250. The manufacturer recommends using the range from 800 to 1000 ISO.
I you want to download and transcode the files, you need a program that is available for both MAC (Glue Tools) and Windows (Phantom PCC)
As for the image style (Look) the Phantom Flex 4k camera has several settings such as matrix, black pedestal, saturation ... etc. These modifications are saved as metadata in the case of Cine Raw files and are applied in the Prores files.
It has three HDSDI video outputs that can be configured independently at 1080p or you can join two of them to provide UHD (4k) signal in case of using an accessory that needs dual-link. It can be displayed in Rec 709 or in the logarithmic curve.
The Phantom Flex 4k provides quick reproduction of the shots. You can select at what point you want to start and end the clip for shooting monitoring.
